Experience Berlin like a local, live in a 20th century flat in a quiet but central street in one of Berlin's oldest districts. Surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants with the underground in front of the building.
We took the vintage elements of the flat and combined it with modern design and technology. You'll find Internet, a modern kitchen, a vintage bathroom with new fittings, TV, wooden flooring, build-in library and quirky features.
The neighborhood is one of the new up& coming districts in Berlin. According to one of my guest:
"Moabit/Mitte has become the new insiders' tip of Berlin. Just in front of the house are a couple of cool bars, a big supermarket and bakeries are around as well. So you have everything you need".
The quiet, courtyard facing bedroom sleeps 2 and in the big living room area you'll find another bed and a sleeping sofa. All beds and mattresses are brand new.
The place was refurbished in September. More details below:
Kitchen: brand new kitchen, fully equipped incl. coffee machine, toaster, microwave
Bathroom: retro look with new fittings, shower, hairdryer, towels are provided
Bedroom: cosy 2 single new beds and antique furniture (wardrobe, drawer, mirror), sheets are provided
Living room: built-in library, large dinner table, sofa (that sleeps 2) and an additional bed, TV
Wireless internet, parking in front of the building, pub style restaurant (with amazing schnitzel) and a small grocery store in the building. Underground station in front of the building which connects to east & west Berlin.
Free parking on the street. U-Bahn/ Tube station right in front of the building.

Keys were left for us at the restaurant below, picking them up was a breeze, the flat was on the 4th floor and was really airy, lots of space for 3 of us visiting.
The flat was 3 stops on the underground (literally beneath the flat) from the main centre, which was fantastic.
The area was great, loads of little restaurants to pop in to.
I'd definitely stay again.
Had a great stay at Marleen's place. It is very well located (just next to the underground station and to a shopping center) and is a comfortable and trendy apartment. We never actually met Marleen, but everything was set up properly. We picked up the keys from Amina at the restaurant downstairs and all the instructions were included. The only thing I would say is that knowing that 4 of us were staying, we could have been provided with at least 2 keys! The sink in the bathroom was also a bit blocked. Again, apart from that, great place and location. There is also a small balcony and a court yard downstairs with tables and chairs that could be utilised during the summer. Unfortunately the weather didn't allow it this time. Would recommend people to stay here!!
Appartement spacieux et agréable très bien situé au pied du métro
Really good, spacious, comfortable. Convenient location next to U-Bahn station.
Wir waren zu viert in Marleens Appartment (4 Mädels) und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und sauber. Mit der Schlüsselübergabe hat alles reibungslos geklappt und wir würden alle sofort wieder hier übernachten.
L'appartamento è bellissimo, esattamente come si vede nelle foto tranne le sedie (mancano quelle in cucina e di quelle da regista intorno al tavolo ne è rimasta solo una) e le luci in bagno (adesso ci sono due lampadine molto fioche); è comodissimo (davanti all'ingresso della U e vicino a ristoranti molto buoni - consigliati anche da Marleen), ma ha bisogno di essere più curato: gli sportelli della cucina, per esempio: uno è rotto -ed è assente- un altro si sta rompendo; il rubinetto del lavandino si sta staccando dal piano, le posate e le stoviglie sono inadeguate (due cucchiaini soltanto, alcuni piatti e bicchieri rotti), la doccia del bagno deve essere ancora fissata nel muro. Torneremo sicuramente (e lo stiamo già consigliando agli amici) ma questa piccola manutenzione è urgente e necessaria
Nice apartment, clean, spacious and beautiful, needs some repairs but is a little detail. The building is incredible!

I'm originally from Berlin and recently moved back after having spent a couple of years in London and other places. Thought it's time to return to one of the most vibrant cities in Europe.. Let's see..
